And Now for Something Totally Different

You don’t know me personally, but I am an extreme introvert. Not antisocial, not stuck up, not shy. Introversion is defined as:

  1. The act of directing one’s interest inward or to things within the self.
  2. The state of being concerned primarily with one’s own thoughts and feelings rather than with the external environment.

I don’t know exactly what “fits me to a T” really means, but it does. I am just now, this late in life, learning to embrace my introversion, and not feel bad about it. I am what I am. I am the way I have been all of my life, and will continue to be until the day I die. The difference, is that I am learning that it’s okay, and not something to be concerned with in the least. A great book that has really helped me is “Introvert Power: Why Your Inner Life is Your Hidden Strength,” by Laurie A. Helgoe. Check it out. (And don’t be turned off by the cover, this is not just “chick lit.”)
